Work Injuries


Led by partner Ron Edelman, the work injury team at Edelman & Thompson includes a former workers compensation judge, a former legal advisor with the Missouri Division of Workers’ Compensation, and four veteran attorneys who together have helped thousands of injured workers in Missouri and Kansas get the medical care they need and the settlements they deserve.

Whether it’s an on-the-job accident or a repetitive trauma case such as carpal tunnel syndrome, Edelman & Thompson’s depth of experience in work injury cases is one reason many attorneys refer their toughest work injury cases to us.

When workers turn to Edelman & Thompson, our team goes to work to fight for all the benefits you deserve: full medical treatment, including future medical care the injury may require, pay for time lost from work, and a cash settlement. Our attorneys handle all contact with the insurance company so that our clients can focus on their medical treatment and getting better.

We will work to get you paid for your lost time from your job so your family has the money it needs to get through difficult times. We will pay the cost of a second opinion on your medical condition from an independent physician so that you don’t have to rely solely on the company doctor. Then, we will work to get you the highest possible monetary settlement to which you are entitled. Our goal is a fair settlement with the insurance company, but we are unafraid to take a case to trial to get our clients what they deserve.

Edelman & Thompson accepts work injury cases on a contingency or percentage basis of 25%. That means we don’t get paid until we win your case and obtain a settlement on your behalf.

If you are injured at work, turn to the work injury team at Edelman & Thompson. Call us today at 816.561.3400.

Edelman & Thompson has 5 locations in the Kansas City, Missouri & Kansas City, Kansas.
